2010 CSA

Because of the long and unusually severe winter, we will not be offering CSA subscriptions in 2010. Planting has begun so late this year, that we could not guarantee timely deliveries of our Certified Naturally Grown vegetables. However, we are leaving our 2009 CSA information on our website so you can see what we offered then as you look forward to the 2011 season.

2009 12 Week CSA

Greetings from Beulahland Farm!

Thank you for your interest in our CSA. We hope that the information contained on this website will answer your questions about our farm and how our CSA operates. If not, feel free to e-mail or telephone us.

Beulahland Farm is a small family farm located in the countryside near the little town of Lyons, in Northeastern Nebraska, where the State's best farmland is located. The land is farmed with family labor.

Knowing your farmer is the best assurance that the food you are buying is farm fresh and naturally grown. We practice eco-friendly, diversified and sustainable agriculture. The produce that you purchase from us is Certified Naturally Grown, and fresh from our family farm to your family's table.

Certified Naturally Grown is a non-profit eco-labeling program for family farms that grow their crops naturally, without the use of synthetic chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, or GMO seeds. Certified Naturally Grown is only open to family farmers who sell their produce locally and provides farmers with a nationally recognized label supported by national and international Environmental Groups, Health Organizations, and Agricultural Groups - including the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements. With more than 600  family farms all across the United States, Certified Naturally Grown is a leading voice in the renaissance of family-based, diversified, sustainable, and chemical free agriculture.

We sell our farm products at the Village Pointe Farmers Market, located at 168th & Dodge in the parking lot of the Village Pointe Shopping Center; at Tomato Tomato, located at 156th & West Center Road; through the Nebraska Food Cooperative; and through our Subscription CSA.

Between 1994 and 2002, the number of Farmers Markets in the United States grew by 79 percent, reflecting a growing preference among consumers for farm fresh products. A CSA is the next logical step. For consumers, a Subscription CSA provides a connection with a local farm family, and a safe and reliable source of high quality food.

By subscribing to our CSA, you will not only receive locally grown produce, but will be able to put a face on your food. My family and I will become your farmers. You will be able to visit with us each week when you pick up your food, and call or e-mail us anytime. This will allow you to develop a relationship with us as your family's farmers, knowing personally the people who grow your food and how it is being grown. By subscribing, you will also be supporting the renewal of eco-friendly, diversified, and family-based agriculture, and of a local food system. Our subscribers will be our priority customers, and will receive the "first pick" from our gardens each week, providing them with the very best we have to offer.

So, how does our CSA work? We will provide our subscribers with three months (12 weeks) of fresh, delicious and wholesome farm produce beginning in May. The assortment of produce will vary throughout the season and will contain a wide variety. At Beulahland Farm, we grow spinach and gourmet salad mixes, bright lights Swiss chard, radishes, carrots, cucumbers, green onions, peas, green beans, new potatoes, summer squash, tomatoes, peppers, and more! Due to the unpredictability of nature we cannot guarantee any specific item or customize individual subscriptions.

We also raise purebred Berkshire pork and may offer naturally raised gourmet pork from time to time as an optional substitute for vegetables. Any time gourmet pork is offered, you will have the choice of receiving the gourmet pork or your normal vegetable subscription.

Our CSA is not a discount buying club, but exactly what the name says - community supported agriculture. We suggest that a subscription is about right for a family of four, but everyone is different in their eating habits so this is only a guideline. Too much? Share the bounty with a friend!

The cost of a subscription is only $25.00 per week for 12 weeks ($300.00 for the season). All natural, free-range chicken eggs are available for an additional $4.00 for a dozen Large, Grade A, Candled eggs per week for 12 weeks ($48.00 for the season) or $2.25 for a half dozen eggs per week for 12 weeks ($27.00 for the season).

A completed subscription form with payment in full or a $100.00 non-refundable deposit reserves your subscription. Early subscriptions are important to us as they help us with our planting plans. The balance of $200.00 is due by May 1, 2009. Harvest pick-ups are on Saturdays from 8:00 AM to Noon at our farmstand at the Village Pointe Farmers Market located at 168th & West Dodge in West Omaha. There are a limited number of subscriptions available.

We are real farmers and are committed to providing you the best food possible - fresh, from our family farm to your family's table. We are Victor, Cheri, and Hannah Novak, and we want to be your farmers!

Thank you!
